2019 - May - U16 Girls are Hampshire Cup runners up

Winchester HC U14 girls narrowly lost their Hampshire Cup Final 2-1 in a nailbiting, close contest. After dominating play in the 1st half a simple goal from a rare break gave Alton the lead. Micah Smithard’s half time talk inspired a thrilling second half display and Izzy Thomas converted one of several close chances to equalise. Alton only attacked rarely to protect their lead but when they did, they always looked a big threat. However, it was an unfortunate penalty corner concession towards the last few moments of the game and a subsequent goalmouth scrambled goal that sealed the cup in Alton’s favour. A super, but tense game for all spectators, in a game where whoever lost was going to be disappointed.
